Try this powerpoint video I made and uploaded to youtube. It is quite primitive but if you can pause and read it at each step it may help. This was for the kwikset lever entry lock. Thanks,

Ah, so your key is upside down when you insert it in the lock... ******** installers who don't want to take the time to install the lock correctly for the swing of the door do this alot...

Good news is that the lock works iether way, bad news is that it eventually will wear down your lock prematurely because the pins inside the lock are not meant to fight gravity and the springs get sprung!

Unfortunately to turn the keyway 180 degrees requires a special tool that comes with a kwikset rekey kit. It can be done with a flathead screwdriver but involves several steps and may render the lock useless because the final step involves bending one of the internal clips that secures the keyway to the knob... best to have it done at a locksmith and with the proper tool takes about 2 minutes and the key is not even required

03 Saturn vue 160 lb compression on 1/3/5 no compression on 2/4/6 timing marks are lined up.


You have 2/4/6 timing marks 180 degress out on exhaust or intake cam .

Did your special tool ?
Rotate the crankshaft using the J 42098 until the #1 cylinder is at 60 degrees before top dead center (BTDC).
Install theJ 42069 Crankshaft Locking Tool.
Rotate the crankshaft in the engine rotational direction (clockwise) using the J 42098 until the #1 cylinder is at top dead center (TDC) and tighten the lever arm to the water pump pulley flange.
Important: Ensure that the alignment of the crankshaft is not 180 degrees off. The alignment mark must align with the corresponding notches on the rear timing belt cover.
Install the 1-2 and 3-4 camshaft locks, the J42069-1 Timing Belt Alignment Kit and the J42069-2.
Important: Do not rotate the crankshaft if the camshafts are not locked in place with the 1-2 and 3-4 camshaft locks (J42069-1 and J42069-2).
Important: Do not rotate the camshafts unless the crankshaft is at 60 degrees BTDC or the valves may contact the crankshaft.
Loosen the tensioner pulley.
Remove the timing belt.

How to adjust from 2 3/8 to 2 3/4? There is a pin that I can remove but don't see a bottom or how to extend... Kwikset brand Thank you... :)


If you are adjusting the backset for one of the Kwikset regular deadbolt latches, use a Phillips screwdriver to extend the bolt by turning the screw clockwise. (Hold the latch so that the word "UP" is to the top.) Then rotate the front section of the latch clockwise 180 degrees. (This is the section with the plate that screws into the side of the door.) You shouldn't need a tool to twist this section; check if you are rotating it in the correct direction.

I hope this helps. I think the procedure is the same for the drive-in latch. For that optional latch, you can't grip the plate to help you twist the backset depth adjustment.

Have cylinder body stuck in cradle can not remove it


If you rotate it back as much as possible toward the start position (the slot with the dot), then insert the tip of a kwikset key and give it a small twist clockwise or counter, it should be able to rotate back to start and you can remove the cylinder. I rekeyed 3 in a row no problem and had the last one jam up. I successfully restarted 3 times, but couldn't get it to complete the rekey.

  6. Set the number one piston at TDC. The UP mark on the camshaft pulley should be at the top, and the TDC marks on the pulley should line up with the top edge of the cylinder head.
  7. Using the proper gauge feeler gauge, adjust the valves on cylinder number one.

How do you correct a lock that's installed up side down?


There is no real orientation to a lock, but if the key has to be inserted with the teeth up and you prefer with the teeth down, just remove the 2 screws holding the halves of the door handles on, and remove the outside one, rotate it 180 degrees, and put it back in again. It should work fine.

Resetting combination bike lock


Try rotating locking device 180 degrees and hold it down and set combo to 0000, then let up on locking bar. That should clear the old combo. To reset, rotate the device 180 degrees and hold down while inserting your new 4 digit code and then release it.
